heyyy everyone! we’ve decided to do a recap of all the funny and interesting moments that are worth mentioning. get ready to laugh, not at the funny jokes, but because we’re apparently very “lame”.
TALL PEOPLE PROBLEMS
during the first week, we did life filming which meant that we had to stand under a very very bright light. and the bright light had to be situated just above just for a perfect lighting. as you can tell, tanya is already very very tall so every single time she goes under the light to film, she has to squat down really really low in order to avoid hitting the lamp. everytime she hits the lamp, she’ll just be like “ow” and pause for like one minute before saying sorry. #tallpeopleproblems that’s why we always say it’s sometimes good to be short like kayla, who can fit easily under with minimal squatting needed.
DON’T MOLEST THE LIGHT
so you’ve probably heard about the really bright light from above. so apparently the name of the light brand is called kino flo. so the instructors found it really funny and labelled the light package as “kinoflo’s body” and “don’t molest it” to be honest we’re more confused than anything.
MR YIHUA HAS NO ZIPPER
yes, the title was just to attract your attention and i’m not referring to the zipper you’re thinking about. one day, we were just looking at mr yihua’s bag only to realise that he’s bag has like 3 huge binder clips attached to it. we found out that mr yihua has no time to go buy a new bag and that the zipper was broken. to hold the bag in place, he had to use the binder clips instead of the zip. let’s hope he finds time to buy a new bag before the clips break too and he loses his things
OUR INSTRUCTOR CAN’T PLAY POKEMON GO
just like any other day, we left nyp at around 8.30 and we were supposed to be walking gingerly to the mrt station because gl has to catch her bus. all of a sudden, mr yihua caught up from behind (even though he left the production site like 10 min after us) and said “i thought you guys were rushing home. okay i need to rush off now, bye” and he walked off. only, his version of walk is more like our jog and we literally had to jog after him to catch up with him. when we reached the mrt station he was quite confused and he was just like “did y’all run after me??” we were joking that if he was playing pokemon go while walking, this screen will pop up:
THE PHOTOGRAPHER ATTEMPTS TO RUIN THE CHRISTMAS ATMOSPHERE
production period was held nearing the christmas period and nothing was complete without a christmas tree in the lounge!!! so the christmas tree was sitting there, without anyone messing around with it. when suddenly, mr nevin (photographer) decided to hide next to the christmas tree to take photos of us (smart idea apparently). everything was going fine when mr nevin decided to push the christmas tree down out of the blue. obviously he panicked to pick up all the scattered christmas tree decorations while trying to prop the tree up with his hands and feet. just when things couldn’t get worse, mr nova walked along and commented “hey, where’s the bear?” (we hung a stuffed toy bear on the christmas tree), which made mr nevin panic even more… after everything he just pretended that nothing happened. but we all know it did..
THE MYSTERY OF THE SHOOTING RUBBER BANDS
so we completed our animation clip 2 days earlier than expected so we were practically free for the last day (before wrap party). having nothing better to do, all 4 of us were just chilling on the floor, listening to something our tent neighbours (madeit) had to say. we don’t actually remember what we were doing but we weren’t paying attention to anything in particular. out of the blue, tanya suddenly felt something hit her in the back and she realised that it was a rubber band. we were all really confused because the rubber band virtually came out of nowhere because there was no one except mr yihua in our tent. we “interrogated” mr yihua and asked him whether it was him that shot the rubber band. he looked up from his computer screen and shook his head.
and we sat there, feeling really confused for two minutes or so until mr yihua started smiling while “doing his work”. either he was the CULPRIT or he was watching something really funny. but we don’t think the latter was the case.
HOW TO PREVENT YOUR BALLOON FROM BURSTING DURING GAMES 101
one of the games during wrap party was to burst balloons that were tied on other’s feet. because we were really free that day, we volunteered to help blow up and tie the balloons (okay fine we didn’t really volunteer. ms hazel saw us lazing around and she just told us to go and help out) while we were getting ready the balloons, mr yihua suddenly came in and thought of a brilliant idea to win the balloon bursting game. he secretly made some doubled-layered balloons, hopefully making the balloons harder to burst. after blowing up several doubled-layered balloons, mr yihua brought them out, smiling like a little boy that had just bought new toys. to be honest, even though the idea seemed really clever at first, the balloons that were really hard to burst during the games was actually the ones that had very little air in it.
THE NEW OREO THINS?? NO, ITS OREO SLIMS
we went to Cheers one day to buy instant noodles and decided to buy the new oreo thins as well. offering them to mr yihua later on in the day, he commented “is this the new oreo? oreo SLIMS?” and then began the non-stop laughter that probably sounded really horrible. from then on, we started calling the biscuits OREO SLIMS and we actually got quite used to it. come to think about it, we never use the name oreo thins anymore. for our farewell gift for mr yihua, we gave him 4 boxes of oreo slims. WE LITERALLY USED MASKING TAPE TO COVER EVERY “THINS” WE COULD SEE AND WROTE “SLIMS” OVER IT! (for the record, he called us lame HAHAHA)
OUR TENT BECOMES A TOILET
to freshen ourselves up during the production period, tanya brought peppermint oil to keep us awake as well. as a result, our whole tent smelled really minty. then ms kesia came along and mentioned that our tent was especially minty, we then carried on to explain it was because of the peppermint. she took a deep breathe and went “it smells like a toilet” and then the debate came of what our tent smelled like. tanya said the mentos we ate also contributed to the minty smell and the salonpas that we had lying around (……). gl said that mr yihua was really cool, so our tent was naturally minty. ms erica said our tent smelled like tan tock seng hospital. ms kesia still insisted that it smelled like a toilet. she says that sometimes, people spray peppermint oil in their toilets. perhaps she meant some aromatherapy thingy.
